The DB_REP_FULL_ELECTION flag historically specified to the DB_ENV->repmgr_start() method has been removed from the 4.6 release.

In the Berkeley DB 4.6 release, a simpler and more flexible implementation of this functionality is available. Applications needing to configure the first election of a replication group differently from subsequent elections should use the DB_REP_FULL_ELECTION_TIMEOUT flag to the DB_ENV->rep_set_timeout() method to specify a different timeout for the first election.
